Organization: International Committee of the Red Cross
Closing date: 23 Mar 2021
What we do
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence. We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence. We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.
Produced by the ICRC and published by Cambridge University Press, the International Review of the Red Cross is a specialized peer-reviewed journal dedicated to international humanitarian law, humanitarian policy and humanitarian action. It is published three times per year and its principal audience includes decision and policy-makers in governments, international governmental and non-governmental organisations, universities, the media, armed forces, and all those interested in humanitarian issues at large.
The Review staff is a small team of three people within the Department of International Law and Policy of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC): The Editor-in-Chief, the Managing Editor, and an Associate. In addition, there are occasionally short-term academic trainees joining the team throughout the year for periods of 2-3 months each in exchange for course credit.
The Managing Editor will work closely with the Editor-in-Chief in all activities related to the production and promotion of the Review. This includes involvement in the identification of future themes for issues of the Review, assessment, editing and research related to submitted articles, overall content management, and outreach for events organized at the occasion of an edition’s publication. The staff of the Review is in regular interaction with the ICRC’s Legal Division, as well as other divisions and departments, in particular the ICRC’s Protection Division, Operations Department, the Law & Policy Outreach Unit as well as Cambridge University Press.
